About TRX

KL’s Future-Ready Central Business District

Excellent connectivity, iconic public realms and smart and sustainable design come together to create Malaysia’s first international financial district at Tun Razak Exchange (TRX).

Designed as KL’s best-connected address, TRX’s 70-acre masterplan includes a dedicated MRT interchange station and direct accesses to Jalan Tun Razak, MEX and SMART Highways, as well as the upcoming DUKE 3.

Designed as a porous development, TRX will also catalyse the rejuvenation of the surrounding Imbi and Pudu neighbourhoods.

A pedestrian boulevard will connect TRX with the Bukit Bintang shopping belt, creating a seamless lifestyle destination that is vibrant, lively and inclusive. At the heart of TRX is The Exchange Mall, and located on the mall’s rooftop is the TRX Central Park, a 10-acre public green nexus.

TRX’s office spaces are designed to be smart and sustainable, to fulfil the requirements of the world’s best businesses. Anchoring the development is the Exchange 106, South East Asia’s tallest tower, standing at 492 meters.

A future-ready development developed with sustainability at its core, TRX is the first development in Malaysia to have received a neighbourhood-level provisional Green Buildings Index (GBI) certification.

TRX has a line up of attractive incentives for potential investors. Click here to know more.
